Little eLit releases the second chapter “Children and Technology: What can research tell us?“ from their book online Young Children, New Media, and Libraries: A Guide for Incorporating New Media into Library Collections, Services, and Programs for Families and Children Ages 0-5.  This collaborative book by the Little eLit community helps librarians discover best practices for effectively using new media in their libraries and communities.  The second chapter written by librarian and doctoral student Tess Prendergast gives “a brief summary of some of the existing and emerging research that librarians may wish to familiarize themselves with as they navigate the digital terrain of early childhood literacy” and offers some foundational concepts to apply when integrating new media into libraries.
